Are You A 21st Century Leader?

Ayelet Baron

There is a lot of hype about the future of work, but many of the changes we will see in future years are already taking shape. What we will experience is their acceleration as change continues to be the only constant in our world. Those leading with 21st century practices of abundance and possibilities understand that aligning people around shared purpose and simplifying work is at the heart of their success. Organizations need to start preparing themselves for the future of work. While many people are talking about the impact of technology, generations and globalization, Ayelet goes deeper to help you understand the major shifts that are coming and how to prepare for them. She will illuminate the challenges business leaders face today, as they encounter competing pressures to meet short term goals while also driving innovative growth and building trusted communities. She will discuss the issues surrounding a transition from a top-down hierarchal structure to one based on shared purpose and a mindset shift to wholeness, explore the characteristics of the 21st century leader, and how to build thriving 21st century organizations. She will share ancient wisdom and real life stories of 21st century leaders from her upcoming book, Our Journey to Business Common Sense.
